18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mind seeks serenity

I took this picture while we were coming back from Ape Cave. Om a personal level, I did not like the idea of going into the cave, but once I was in, I decided to go till the end. And I did it. Feeling satisfaction we were coming to our bus. On that way, there was a man who was sitting still (I thought that he must be contemplating his life). Because of our fast-paced life, our minds seek serenity in the forests like this.
